Text: Company Description At CERN, the European Organization for Nuclear Research, physicists and engineers are probing the fundamental structure of the universe. Using the world's largest and most complex scientific instruments, they study the basic constituents of matter - fundamental particles that are made to collide together at close to the speed of light. The process gives physicists clues about how particles interact, and provides insights into the fundamental laws of nature. Find out more on http://home.cern. Diversity has been an integral part of CERN's mission since its foundation and is an established value of the Organization. Job Description Within the Programme, we are looking for a Software Engineer to join CERN. You will join an agile software development team, working at the heart of CERN in the Beam Controls Group. In this team, you will actively develop a framework for acquiring and processing data from 10,000's of live accelerator data sources and a big data (> 1PB) data store (Hadoop Spark) persisting timeseries data coming from millions of signals. The data processing platform should enable experts to run advanced data analyses and apply machine learning algorithms on both live data streams and historical data, making the outputs available for further use and / or persistence. The available processing algorithms should include a library of common available algorithms for which the inputs can be configured by end users. In addition, it should be possible for users to safely supply their own custom data processing algorithms written in Java or Python. You will take part in all aspects of the software engineering process, specifically: Participate in the whole software development lifecycle (requirements, design, development, testing, deployment and monitoring), following an agile approach and utilising industry relevant technologies (Java, Spring, Python, Git, Jenkins, Ansible, Prometheus, Grafana, Atlassian), to deliver a robust framework and delivery pipeline; Communicate with the end-users of the services to understand their needs and help translate these into appropriate software solutions; Interact with skilled and motivated software engineers on a daily basis to deliver quality results; Investigate, diagnose and resolve operational problems.

Essential skills and experience: Experience in Java development using Spring and JPA; Experience building new software systems or evolving existing ones; Experience applying software quality assurance techniques and practice with corresponding tools; Team spirit. Desired technical skills: Experience of knowledge in the application on data analysis and machine learning tools and software packages; Experience with Python and Spark; Experience working with CI/CD tools. Please note that CERN Staff members are not eligible to apply for a Fellowship. Additional Information CERN would very much like to benefit from your expertise, commitment and passion. In return, CERN will provide you with: An employment contract for between six months (minimum) up to a maximum of 36 months. A stipend ranging from 5,281 to 6,558 Swiss Francs per month (net of tax). Coverage by CERN’s comprehensive health scheme (for yourself, your spouse and children), and membership of the CERN Pension Fund. Depending on your individual circumstances: an installation grant, family, child and infant allowances as well as travel expenses to and from Geneva. 2.5 days of paid leave per month.
